My computer at work wont let me get onto the internet and I don't have a smart phone since I'm not ready to give up my cheap slider phone with qwerty keyboard, it has no internet function. Amazon sells an ipad mini for 250 bucks and they also have Kindle Fire HD 7'' for 140 bucks, but the HDX version is 229. Is the added "X" worth 90 bucks... I mainly want to be able to use a good free pharmacy ap like Micromedex, I think that one's free and it uses the same info as lexicomp which costs a lot of money. And for something like Micromedex, is the whole app downloaded onto your tablet or do you need an internet connection? Also, I don't get how internet is free with these devices? I can just automatically connect to wifi without having to pay to use internet anywhere, especially at work at Walmart?
